In a spectacular show from Malta, Mariam Mamadashvili was declared the winner of the 2016 Junior Eurovision Song Contest after a tight race to the finish. Mariam's song is called Mzeo which means Sun.

The overall score was be decided by a 50-50 mix of professional jury and kids jury from every participating country. For the first time, however, the competition included a panel of experts that was allocated as an additional country. This panel of judges was made up of  Mads Grimstad of Universal Music, expert show producer, Christer Bjorkman, the man behind the Swedish selection for Eurovision, Melodifestivalen and Jedward, the Irish representatives at Eurovision 2011 and 2012.

The voting time had three different parts, the results from the senior judges of all 17 countries, the results from each member of the jury panel, that made up the vote of three more countries; and the results of the kids’ jury that were announced at the end as the televoting results of this year’s Eurovision.

It's the third time that Georgia has won the competition, setting a new record for Junior Eurovision. Georgia scored a total of 239 points from the international expert and the kids juries plus the result from the Expert Panel. Armenia's Anahit and Mary finished second with 232 points with Italy's Fiamma Boccia in third place with 209 points
